Before the WWDC, much talk about the expansion of Apple Pay, specifically its arrival in Switzerland. During WWDC, its arrival was announced in France and Hong Kong. It took weeks to finally service the Swiss soil.
The beginnings of Apple Pay in Switzerland are not different from those of other countries. At the moment a little slow, and few companies that adopt it. Most popular cards, Visa and MasterCard, can be used with Apple payment service. The stores that will be available at the moment are not many: Aldi, Avec, C & A, k kiosk, Mobile Zone, P & B, Spar, and TopCC, besides clearly the Apple Store.
Apple Pay expands slowly
Since its launch in 2014 in the United States to date, Apple Pay is available in Australia, Canada, China, and the UK. Besides adding merchants that accept the service, they have also been expanded financial institutions that support it.
Apple has reported that France and Hong Kong receive the service in the near future, although no details of the time of arrival. While many countries would be prepared technologically to adopt the service, Apple must sign agreements for banks and credit cards adopt their use.
